William Spivey - Opal Sun (waag_rel022)
Most of my sounds are created on a Mac using, at present, Metasynth with Architect. My work stems from experimenting with an emphasis on originality. I'm fascinated with harmonic interplay, rhythmic content & abstract sequencing.
With 'Opal Sun' I originally intended to do a more low-key longform series; something that unfolded slower than more recent collaborations & to maintain the same general mood throughout. As usual the pieces took on a life of their own.
While working on this in January I became aware of WAAG & it's broad spectrum of sound artists. I'm honoured to have WAAG as a home for this solo excursion!
Opal Sun (waag_rel022) by William Spivey is my kind of ambient electronic music. It is deeply immersive and engaging … ensnaring me from the first listen. I find it particularly endearing first thing in the morning or late at night … it complements stillness very, very well.
I am proud that William has found a home with weareallghosts. He is a talented musician and I look forward to releasing more of his solo work in the future.
As before … an MP3 version of this album will be available for free here on Archive with a lossless version available for 'pay what you want' on Bandcamp.
